Summary

Feedback is one of the most powerful influences on student achievement, yet it is difficult to implement productively within the constraints of a mass higher education system. Designing Effective Feedback Processes in Higher Education: A Learning-Focused Approach addresses the challenges of developing effective feedback processes in higher education, combining theory and practice to equip and empower educators. It places less emphasis on what teachers do in terms of providing commentary, and more emphasis on how students generate, make sense of, and use feedback for ongoing improvement.

Including discussions on promoting student engagement with feedback, technology-enabled feedback, and effective peer feedback, this book:

  • Contributes to the theory and practice of feedback in higher education by showcasing new paradigm feedback thinking focused on dialogue and student uptake
  • Synthesises the evidence for effective feedback practice
  • Provides contextualised examples of successful innovative feedback designs analysed in relation to relevant literature
  • Highlights the importance of staff and student feedback literacy in developing productive feedback partnerships
  • Supports higher education teachers in further developing their feedback practice.

 

Designing Effective Feedback Processes in Higher Education: A Learning-Focused Approach contributes to the theory and practice of higher education pedagogy by re-evaluating how feedback processes are designed and managed. It is a must-read for educators, researchers, and academic developers in higher education who will benefit from a guide to feedback research and practice that addresses well recognised challenges in relation to assessment and feedback.
